Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade visited Marsh Landing Dec. 10 to sign copies of his best-selling book “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War that Changed American History.”
Hosted by Realtor Janet Westling, the private book signing event was held at a Marsh Landing home at 24578 Harbour View Drive that is currently for sale, affording guests the opportunity to view both the home and receive a copy of Kilmeade’s book.
Available in both hard cover and paperback, “Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates” recounts President Jefferson’s deployment of the U.S. Navy to blockade Tripoli in order to stop North African pirates who were capturing American ships and enslaving their crews – an international conflict that echoes the current threat to America posed by ISIS and other terrorist groups.
“I like to bring American stories to people – stories people don't know about – and bring them forward,” said Kilmeade. “That was my goal.”
